Eliminate Errors

Measuring a roof for shingles is an error-prone process that often results in miscalculations. Aerial measurement reports eliminate manual errors so you can be assured you have accurate numbers from the very start. Eliminate material shortages and overages once and for all, resulting in money savings for your roofing business.

Estimating your Roof Size: Please use this guide to estimate your actual roof area. Your garage and patio also need to be added to estimate the actual roof area. COMMONLY, your net roof area is about 25% greater than your living square footage.

Pitch (Slope) of Roof: This is the rise/run in feet. The larger the slope, the greater your actual roof area.

Roofing Materials

The purpose of calculating the precise measurements of a roof is to ensure that the appropriate amount of roofing materials are ordered – whether you have a shingles roof, gable roof or metal roof. Here are some common roofing materials and considerations for each:

Shingles

Shingles are typically sold in bundles. Depending on the type and brand of shingle, it may take a different number of bundles to make a square. When cost comparing shingles, remember to base price on squares and not on bundles.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is typically sold by the sheet or panel. To determine the number of sheets or panels necessary to cover the roof, divide the width of the roof by the sheet or panel coverage width.

Other Roofing Materials

The basic square footage and length calculations detailed above should help estimate overall cost for other materials. Additional roofing materials that should be accounted for include items such as leak barrier, deck protection, drip edge, rake edge, ridge vents, and hip and ridge caps.

Efficient, cost-effective roofing work depends on your ability to quickly and accurately gather measurements and assess the current roof condition. Improve your responsiveness to customers by replacing countless site visits with online roof measuring tools using recent aerial photos. Take traffic and safety risk out of the equation and produce fast, accurate quotes with the power of high resolution aerial maps. 

It’s quite a challenge to fly over the right location during the perfect window in time late winter or early spring. You want the capture to be snow-free, but must act quickly before the trees go green. You also need cooperative clear skies and adequate daylight – more difficult during short winter days. However detailed aerial capture plans may be, survey teams must still adapt on the fly and follow opportunity. You must learn to adapt quickly, and nimbly deploy aerial assets as opportunities present.

Take Chicago, for example – the time between last snow and first bloom can often be measured in days, or at best a few weeks. Clear weather aerial capture is difficult, but the ability for roofers to accurately measure what’s typically obscured by nature is essential.

Aerial vs. Satellite vs. Drones

There has been a move away from the satellite imagery that dominated measuring and site-surveying for the previous decade. There’s a couple of reasons for this, the main one being quality. No matter how good the camera on a satellite may be, it’s still in outer space. By being closer to the earth’s surface,  a high-quality camera on an airplane is going to capture a clearer, sharper image. 

What about imagery from a drone? With drone-captured imagery, you have the same problem you have with satellite captures, distance. Drone cameras historically have had wide-angle lenses, causing distortion of rooflines at low altitudes. We have no problem with drone-captured imagery, it’s often the best, and sometimes the only source for rural addresses that lack coverage by satellite and aerial imagery. To overcome the distortion, we suggest flying your drone to a minimum altitude of 400 feet. At that height, any visible distortion should be negligible, and you can make good use of your up-to-date drone imagery! That leads us to our next point…
